Lazy days on the Buffalo Bayou

The Buffalo Bayou Park is one of my favorite places to spend an afternoon exploring in Houston. With over 160 acres of jogging and bike paths, stunning sculptures, a meandering river, and unbeatable views of the downtown skyline, the Buffalo Bayou is becoming a destination for visitors from all over Houston.

Don't miss the bat colony on Waugh Bridge (over 250,000 bats). If you go at sunset, you'll be able to watch as the bats leave their home for the night. A sight unlike any other.

I'm also excited to see the finished Nature Play Area and Lost Lake that should be opening Summer 2015.

Keep Exploring! xo, The Bayou Botanist
